Instrument cluster pullers

I have used instrument cluster pullers very successfully on my 1998 E300D to change bulbs.
Now I have a 1999ML and a 2001 C320.
Do the instrument clusters come out the same way, ie: can I use the same pullers as on the 98 E300?
If not, how do you get to the instrument cluster bulbs on the 99 ML and the 2001 C320?
Thank you....Richard (rsl007)

The ML instrument cluster is bolted in much like a BMW. The plastic trim must be removed first & then you will find the sheet-metal screws.


The W203 chassis still uses the 140-589-02-33-00 pulling hooks!

Good to know...I thought about going after the ML cluster with those hooks in the same manner as in my other two MB vehicles ...what a mistake that would be!
